View Full Version : [ubuntu] 10.04 Upgrade Damaged GRUB's Menu.lst

I ran the 10.04 upgrade on my Ubuntu Server 64 system. The upgrade seemed to go with no major problems. However, when I rebooted the system, Ubuntu would not load. GRUB reported a message saying that device {long character string like a UUID entry in menu.lst} could not be found. I found that I was able to boot Ubuntu in Recovery mode (the second entry in menu.lst).

Is there a way to reconstruct the menu.lst entry for Ubuntu in it's full, normal mode?

I've done Google-Ubuntu searching and tried several steps. Nothing has worked.

What did you upgrade from?

I assume it was an older version that uses legacy-GRUB.

Versions from 9.10 onwards use GRUB2:

I upgraded from Version 9.1.

To be certain that you understand what I'm seeing, the GRUB top entry for a normal boot fails but the second entry for recovery mode works with no problem....I can get to the command line in text mode. The title says Ubuntu 9.1 Server (Recovery) 64 but I'm confident that it actuall loads Version 10.04. How can I confirm this from the command line?

Thanks.

I am not familiar with servers but
uname -r will print the kernel version which should tell you if it is 10.04 or not.

Also, have you tried running
sudo update-grub since the upgrade to see if that sorts things out?

From the command line in the "9.04 Recovery" item in the GRUB menu I found:

Ubuntu Version: 10.04
Kernel Version: 2.6.31-16-server.

Running grub-update did not help but it did show that it found a "2.6.32-16 server version" as well as the 2.6.31-16-server version.

I wonder why GRUB is loading the "31" version when there is a "32" version available.

Any further ideas?

What does the output from the command suggested by plucky show?

Could you post the contents of the file /boot/grub/grub.cfg please?

1. Result of las_release - a command: Version 10.04.1 LTS

2. I have no grub.cfg file in my /boot/grub folder.

Update:

When I found no grub.cfg in my /boot/grub folder, I did some digging and found that I was using Grub Version 1. I upgraded to Version 2.

Now, I still have the same booting problem but the startup gets further along. Now the screen turns to Ubuntu's pastel color, the font size is dramatically reduced and I get a "10.04" with four solowly blinging dots under it. A message appears saying that disk drive for UUID = ................ is not ready or not present. The UUID is exactly the same as the one for the recovery mode startup which works with no problem.

I don't understand why the UUID works for Recovery mode but not for Normal mode.

I can't post output from any Linux command since I can only boot in terminal mode. (I'm using Windows on another PC for this forum.)

Hi,
do you have an Ubuntu CD?

If yes, boot the computer and post the results of the bootscript linked to at the bottom of my post.

If there is an issue with GRUB or a faulty fstab file, it should show up and then we can work on solutions.

Thanks.

Thanks again for your help. I downloaded the Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop iso file and put it on a cd. I can't use the server edition as a live cd since server does not include any desktop graphical environment (command line only).

I hope the info in the Results.txt file proves helpful.

For some reason I cannot open your results.txt.

Could you copy & paste it directly and then highlight it with the cursor and click on the # in the edit panel so it is in code tags. That preserves formating and makes it easier to read.

I do not see any difference between the boot line and the reocvery line other than the normal quiet splash vs. single. Did you try manually editing the first line (e at grub menu) to see it it works without the quiet splash?

You also have raid errors? Was this drive a raid drive before or have you not yet mounted a raid set. Ubuntu has troubles with old raid meta data on drives that were raid but now are not.

sudo dmraid -E -r /dev/sda
sudo dmraid -E -r /dev/sdb
Also check BIOS for raid settings
